Track 1: Obesity

Overweight and obesity, as well as their related noncommunicable diseases, are largely preventable. Supportive environments and communities are fundamental in shaping people’s choices, by making the choice of healthier foods and regular physical activity the easiest choice (the choice that is the most accessible, available and affordable), and therefore preventing overweight and obesity.

Track 2: Obesity Diet & Nutrition

Most people will need to reduce their daily kilo joule intake in order to lose weight. This means eating and drinking less and making healthier food choices. One way to do this is to swap unhealthy and high energy food choices such as fast food, processed food and sugary drinks (including alcohol) for healthier choices. A very low calorie diet (VLCD) involves consuming less than containing less than 3350 kilojoules (800 calories) per day. While a VLCD can be an effective method of losing weight for some obese people, is it not a suitable method for all.

Track 3: Endocrinal and Hormonal Obesity

To regulate different processes, we have some chemical messengers in our body called as hormones. They are one of the main factors in causing obesity. The hormones leptin and insulin, sex hormones and growth hormone influence our appetite, metabolism (the rate at which our body burns kilojoules for energy), and body fat distribution. Obese people have high levels of these hormones that encourage abnormal metabolism and the accumulation of body fat.

Track 4: Maternal Obesity 

Obesity in a woman during pregnancy termed as maternal obesity. Maternal obesity has a key impact on maternal metabolism and offspring development. Insulin resistance, glucose homeostasis, fat oxidation and amino acid synthesis are all disrupted by maternal obesity and contribute to adverse outcomes. Modification of lifestyle is an effective intervention strategy for improvement of maternal metabolism and the prevention of adverse outcomes.

Track 5: Binge Eating Disorder

In binge eating disorder people have a tendency for overeating or the consumption of abnormal amount of food with associated negative psychological and social problems, but without subsequent purging episodes (e.g. vomiting). Counselling and certain medication and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) may help preventing such practices.

Track 6: Genetics Of Obesity

Like many other medical conditions, obesity is the result of genetic and environmental factors simultaneously. Polymorphisms in various genes controlling appetite and metabolism predispose to obesity when sufficient food energy is present. People with two copies of the FTO gene (fat mass and obesity associated gene) have been found on average to weigh 3–4 kg more and have a 1.67-fold greater risk of obesity compared with those without the risk allele. The differences in BMIs of people are due to genetics varies depending on the population examined from 6% to 85%.

Track 7: Bariatric Surgery

Some studies have suggested that psychological health can improve after bariatric surgery. Several procedures have been performed on people under Bariatric surgery, who have obesity. Weight loss is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach or gastric bypass surgery.

Track 8: Obesity & Oncological Outcomes

The association between obesity and risk of a variety of types of cancer has received a considerable amount of attention in recent years. Obesity has been associated with an increased risk of oesophageal cancer, pancreatic cancer, colorectal cancer, breast cancer (among postmenopausal women), endometrial cancer, kidney cancer, thyroid cancer, and gallbladder cancer. Obesity may also lead to increased cancer-related mortality.

Track 9: Obesity & Metabolic Syndrome

The metabolic syndrome is a condition characterized by a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes. The main, diagnostic, components are reduced HDL-cholesterol, raised triglycerides, blood pressure and fasting plasma glucose, all of which are related to weight gain, specifically intra-abdominal/ectopic fat accumulation and a large waist circumference.

Track 10: Childhood Obesity

As with obesity in adults, many factors contribute to the rising rates of childhood obesity. Changing diet and decreasing physical activity are believed to be the two most important causes for the recent increase in the incidence of child obesity. Because of the persistence of childhood obesity into adulthood and its association with numerous chronic illnesses, children who are obese are often tested for hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidaemia, and fatty liver.

Track 11: Obesity Management

The main treatment for obesity concludes dieting and physical exercise. Diet programs may produce weight loss over the short term, but maintaining this weight loss is frequently difficult and often requires making exercise and a lower food energy diet a permanent part of a person's lifestyle.

Track 12: Obesity & Depression

Obesity causes depression. In studies it has been proved that obese people are about 25% more likely to experience a mood disorder like depression compared with those who are not affected by obesity. Obesity can cause poor self-image, low self-esteem, and social isolation, all known contributors to depression.

Market analysis

Weight loss and diet management is a challenge for millions of people around the world. Globally, more than 1 billion people are above an ideal weight. In addition to the negative social effects being overweight has on an individual, the health effects can be deadly. The affects weight has on life-threatening or life-altering disease are devastating. Diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and cancer all have links to being overweight or obese.

Increasing education efforts, accessible weight management plans and foods, and a growing desire to be physically desirable have fuelled this market in more recent years. More than 100 million people in the United States are actively involved in a weight loss or weight management plan at any one time throughout the year. This suggests a demand for products and services which will continue for years to come.

The ubiquity of overweight and obesity is commonly evaluated by using body mass index (BMI). A BMI over 25 kg/m2 is defined as overweight, and a BMI of over 30 kg/m2 as obese. These markers facilitate the common benchmarks for evaluation, but the risks of disease in all populations can increase progressively from lower BMI levels.

According to the World Health Organization, adult mean BMI levels of 22-23 kg.m2 are found in Africa and Asia, while levels of 25-27 kg.m2 are prevalent across North America, Europe, and in some Latin American, North African and Pacific Island countries. BMI increases among middle-aged elderly people, who are at the greatest risk of health complications. People having a BMI below 18.5 kg/m2 tend to be underweight.

Fund Allotment to obesity Research

Obesity nearing $150 billion annually childhood obesity remains a pressing public health concern. Taxpayers fund about $60 billion of these costs through Medicare & Medicaid.  If obesity rates are reduced by as little as 5 %, health care savings could exceed $29 billion. The past three decades and today, an estimated 16.9 % of U.S. children and adolescents ages 2 to 19 are obesity, 31.7 % are either obesity or overweight. In sheer numbers, more than 12 million American children and adolescents are obesity and more than 23 million are either obesity or overweight. In one large study, 61 % of overweight 5 to 10 year olds already had at least one risk factor for heart disease and 26 % had two or more risk factors. There is a 70 % chance that an overweight adolescent will be overweight or obese as an adult.

By adulthood, obesity-associated heart disease, some cancers, stroke, type-2 diabetes are the first, second, third, and seventh leading U.S causes of death. Moreover obesity is costly.  Among children and adolescents, annual hospital costs related to obesity were $127 million during 1997 to 1999 up from $35 million during 1979–1981. From 1987 to 2001, obesity-associated diseases accounted for 27 % of the increases in U.S. medical costs.
